Default Compassionate Cards January Mission

Hi Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I am very
excited to get started with this month's Compassionate Cards mission. This month will be the Tacoma Rescue Mission located in Tacoma, WA. For more information, please visit their website at:

http://www.rescuetacoma.com

This organization provides services to the public which include:

Programs

* Challenge Learning Services
* Men's Shelter
* Food Service
* Jail Ministry
* Youth Program
* Need-A-Break Services
* Family Life
* New Life Program
* Culinary Program
* Case Management
* Emergency Services


I think it would really help boost their moral to know that a complete stranger thought about them and made them a card just for encouragement and hope. I hope that you will join me in this important cause.

There are no restrictions for your card donations. Anything that you can do
to help and encourage would be much appreciated. Some ideas for the cards would be: Hello, Hi, Thinking of you, Thank you, Wishing you all the best, Greetings, Warm Wishes, Let Your Light Shine, Smile, Happy Birthday, Welcome, and Get Well. Please leave them blank inside. I have a pre-printed message that I place inside each card. Please try and send an envelope along with your card, if possible.

I'll be sure and update how many cards we have donated. Feel free to
post a link to the cards that you have made so we can all see your work! :0)

Please have your cards to me no later than January 31st.

Send them to this address:

Compassionate Cards
PO Box 1145
Gig Harbor , WA 98335

Please do not hesitate to ask questions. Thank you in advance to all
that can participate! I know they will appreciate them dearly. :0) Julie.

Hi Everyone! Sorry it took me a bit longer to get back with everyone this month regarding the cards that you sent in(end of the year inventory stuff). Here's the list of who I have received cards from:

Tayna-SCS Taniwolf- Thank you so much Tanya. You are always so faithful in sending in cards for the missions. I love the colors you used in your cards, so pretty. Some of the saying that stood out to me was, "Happiness is reflective of the light of Heaven". "I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful". "When you look for the good in others you discover the best in yourself". Simply lovely, thank you!

Gloria and Ginny from Costa Mesa, CA-

Wow! What a beautiful assortment of cards that you sent.You two must have been card making for days. There are so many gerogous cards to mention. One of many that caught my eye was the one that looks like "ink spots" on as the colorful background and then the glitter flowers and butterflies that were stamped on top. I love all the different size cards that you made. Thank you! :0)

Ruby from Walker, MN-

How organized you are!! All the cards hand rubber bands around the groups of cards with labels on each one. The teen cards are so bright and cheerful with the pink and lime green butterflies. The cards for the ladies was put together with elegance and sophistication they are going to love. The cards for the young girls and boys are going to just tickle them! You even thought of cards for men or older teen guys! How wonderful! Thank you! :0)

Heather from Bristol, WI-
Thank you so much for sending in the cards you made for donation. I am so happy to see that you put links to the cards that you made so that others on the Splitcoaststampers board can enjoy your talents! Your cards are both beautiful and inspiring. I have that stamp set that says "imagine", "always", and "grin". You have given me some creative ideas to try. Thank you! :0)

L. Goldberg from CT-
Your cards are so pretty. I love the olive green and the dark orange(rust) combination. The embossed image in the center really brings that card together. Thank you so much! :0)

Scrappy Carla from Canada- Just when I think you have hit all the techniques and use of amazing embellishments you bring out even more! I love the little pirate guy with the scull and bones stamped embellishment. The moose caring the basket of apples is simply adorable! The cards you made with the glitter in the back ground with the water colored flowered focal point is breath taking. Thank you! :0)

K. Debriyn from WI-
Your cards are so darn cute! I have to say I am a little partial to owls. I know they are going to just love your cards. I know you took a lot of time to make them. The rhinestones you used really adds a special touch. Thank you! :0)

We have a current total of 103 cards!! Thank you so much ladies!!! XOXO, Julie. :0)

Default Cards received from Anita in OH and Joan in WI

Hi Anita-

I received your cards. They are so beautiful. I love the embossed card with swiss dots and the flowers with the little button in the center. The cards with the water colored flower and the little buttons in the center really stand out with the colors that you used. The little kitty holding the glitter heart is so adorable! The happy birthday with the circle punch and the flowers that were chalked are so pretty. I love the salmon colors.

Joan-
Your cards are so bright and cheery. The Enjoy, Happy Birthday, Hugs and Kisses are sure to brighten up the hearts of the person who will be receiving them.

I'll make a video of the cards that you both sent in and made sure they get to the Tacoma Rescue Mission by next week. Thank you both so much for taking the time to uplift someone who is in need. XOXO, Julie. :0)
